The average heat is 21 days, but whenever any of my girls were in heat I kept them on house arrest for a month from the first signs of bleeding, just to be on the safe side.

|volcano||My girl started heat around the same time, she also stinks at times. The first heat it was worse but she stunk some this time too. Mine has stopped bleeding, but if you get a look under her tail you can see shes still swollen. her first heat she bled longer and smelt worse. Shes also extra nice and being a lapdog.|

Has she bled the whole time? Or did it subside then start again?
To see blood still on week 3 can be normal, the smell however is not. What color is the discharge? Any change in behavior? An open uterine infection (Pyometra) can come with a smell and can also be fatal if not treated early.
Is she off food? Lethargic at all?
If you are unsure, best to have a vet check it out and get it early if it is an infection.

When will her heat cycle be over?
Sorry if I put this in the wrong place wasn't sure where it should go. Anyway I was wondering how I know my puppy's heat cycle is over. I have read it is 21 days, but wasn't sure if it varies with each dog. She started bleeding on the 18th of April, and today she started giving off an awful smell but she is still bleeding( never stopped as far as I can tell). When will it be okay to let her in the yard without constant supervision?
